"Elaine Makas gives educators a much-needed guide to providing meaningful, productive assistance in the improvement of instruction for the 21st century. She addresses the challenges that face teachers and administrators to implement standards and align them to the criteria of high-stakes testing. She does this through the dynamics and complexities of working with teacher teams. Her hands-on experience leads her to provide many tables, charts, and facilitator tips that are extremely helpful to practitioners." -- Eric J. Follo, Professor of Education
"Elaine Makas has created an engaging tool that many educators need! This book will guide your journey through the morass of curriculum alignment, development, and assessment. From Mandate to Achievement is exactly the book I required as a principal! Our school struggled through missteps in curriculum alignment and implementing common assessments without the benefit of Makas' wisdom and experience. I highly recommend this book for teachers, administrators, and interested parents." -- Robert A. Martin, Leadership Consultant
"This is definitely a how-to book with helpful pacing guides and plenty of strategies for implementing the ideas presented." -- Laurie Emery, Principal
